Lizzie Borden 2

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.

 

On June 20th 1893 Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the murder of her parents, but her reputation hasn’t really recovered in the years since.

Stuff You Missed In History Class have a podcast about her trial, including some new evidence which may shed some light on the case.

From → 1893
